    I have been working at Covenant House California full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and getting to know the the young adults that live there is a blessing.

    Cons

    Low pay, not paid fairly compared to other agencies. You know when someone is part of the leadership team because of all the perks they get that others don't.

    Advice to Management

    Executives expect to be respected because of their title but little respect is shown by them to their employees. Clear divide between higher paid employees and front line staff.

    I have been working at Covenant House California full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best young people live here.

    Cons

    Executives refuse to listen to staff complaints. Staff is really underpaid, but Executives are paid VERY well. Constant grievances about the boss in Oakland - mean to the young people and staff, lies all the time, and talks behind staff members' backs to other staff members!

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff more. The Oakland boss is giving you a terrible reputation!
